Our culture is one of commitment to safety, accountability for actions and feedback on performance. We believe that every workplace incident, injury and illness is preventable. Our goal is to ensure personal safety for our employees. Preventing workplace incidents, injuries and illnesses is an integral part of our worldwide business strategy.
As with all aspects of sustainability, we continually strive to improve our workplace safety, with an ultimate goal of zero injuries and incidents. In 2012, we launched a global corporate initiative, ALL IN FOR SAFETY, to further promote development of a culture of working and living safely. ALL IN FOR SAFETY is intended to place safety foremost in the thoughts and actions of each employee and to foster a culture of safety awareness and safe behaviors at all times and in all places.
At Eastman, we assess our personal workplace safety performance by examining:
Global Injury and Illness rates (OSHA Recordable)(annual incidents per 100 employees [200,000 work hours] involving treatment beyond first aid in relation to actual work hours)
Target rate ofless than 0.54
Target rate of less than 0.12
Target rate of less than 10
